Global Warming doesn't mean it will get warm.

Global Warming doesn't mean global warming will occur, rather, climate change will occur. Places that were cold will get warm, places that were dry will become wet, places that were warm will get cold.

That makes sense for Los Angeles - where this start of June finds us very cold - as far as my memory, living here goes. Rain, while not impossible in early June, is very unlikely - except now. Most miserable June I can remember in all the time I have ever lived in this area.

We are getting cold. That makes sense with climate change.

How then do we explain the places that were cold, getting colder ...

Bismarck, N.D. (AP) Snow has fallen in Dickinson in June, the first time in nearly 60 years the city has seen snow past May.National Weather Service meteorologist Janine Vining in Bismarck says there were unofficial reports of a couple of inches of snow in Dickinson on Saturday.Vining says snow in North Dakota in June is uncommon, though it's not unheard of. She says other parts of the state have seen June snow within the past 10 years.Williston and Bismarck had received only rain as of mid-Saturday, but Vining said snow was possible in those cities later in the day.

and in Green Bay

The high temperature for the day, reached at 9:50 a.m., was 52. That set a record for the lowest high temperature for June 6, according to the National Weather Service office in Ashwaubenon.The old mark was 53, set in 1943.

So it will be colder where it is already cold, and colder where it is warm, and global warming will occur somewhere, but not around here. It certainly is not occuring on nthe East coast of England where the temperatures have stayed below 60 F. Last year, temperatures were in the mid-70s.
